Bug Description

A variant of the well known bug with network manager. My issue is that the wireless connection is still working after suspend, however the icon in the panel is wrong (two arrows) and I can't use the applet to do any normal wifi operations such as connecting, disconnecting or searching for available networks.

Fresh installation of Ubuntu Mate 16.04.1 with all available updates applied.

'nmcli dev' output:
DEVICE TYPE STATE CONNECTION
wlp2s0 wifi connected xxxxxxxxx 1 (real SSID replaced with x, but the 1 is not part of the SSID)
lo loopback unmanaged --

'ip route' output:
default via 192.168.0.1 dev wlp2s0 proto static metric 600
169.254.0.0/16 dev wlp2s0 scope link metric 1000
192.168.0.0/24 dev wlp2s0 proto kernel scope link src 192.168.0.23 metric 600
